Let’s start with the true star of the 2023 red carpet season: platinum. Platinum is revered for its natural white colour and is the ultimate of beauty and longevity. Because it is stronger than other jewellery metals, it can firmly hold diamonds and other expensive gems. As a result, it’s become a valued ally on the red carpet, where every step and spin is recorded for all to see. In the retail market, its endurance translates to heirloom-quality items adored by generations of jewellery enthusiasts. But it is a symbol of purity, rarity, and eternity, in addition to its physical attributes. These values resonated with celebrities as they made memorable red carpet appearances. When it comes to making a statement of sophistication and eternal beauty, nothing shines quite like platinum.
This year’s Met Gala was a platinum-filled extravaganza. Dua Lipa (seen above) outshines the competition with a sparkling platinum necklace by Tiffany and Co. Anitta wore a blazing orange topaz platinum necklace with a gorgeous platinum watch by Roger Dubuis. Mindy Kaling, our favourite comedic genius, has jumped on the platinum bandwagon with platinum rings by Fred Leighton. Kate Moss and Rihanna made a statement with their platinum necklaces.
The Oscars were yet another example of platinum’s undeniable popularity. Michael B Jordan accessorised his exquisite suit with a platinum brooch, while Florence Pugh, as seen above, accessorised her stunning ensemble with a structured platinum necklace. And let’s not forget Lady Gaga, who looked amazing with a platinum Tiffany vintage necklace. Don’t forget to check out Town & Country’s exclusive peek at Gaga’s necklace.
The 29th Annual SAG Awards were certainly a platinum elegant event. Amanda Seyfried, shown above with platinum Cartier high jewellery earrings set with emeralds, onyx, and diamonds, stole the show. Emily Blunt chose a platinum Bvlgari high jewellery ring with an oval ruby for her red carpet moment in an outfit Miranda Priestly would approve of. Cara Delevingne, on the other hand, made the greatest platinum statement with her De Beers jewellery outfit, which included a platinum line bracelet, eternity band, volute ring and an emerald diamond eternity band.
Platinum was the metal of choice at the Golden Globes.
